Chen-Cheng’s recent breakthrough on scalar curvature type equations on compact Kahler manifold

Description: 

Recently Xiuxiong Chen and Jingrui Cheng have made a breakthrough on the existence of constant scalar curvature metrics on compact Kahler metrics, in view of Calabi-Donaldson program and Yau-Tian-Donaldson conjecture. The essential new input is a highly nontrivial a priori estimates for scalar curvature type equation, which is a fully nonlinear fourth order elliptic PDE. We will discuss the exciting developments regarding the existence of constant scalar curvature metrics and their extensions.
